I am relatively new to Debian.  I have Debian Woody installed on an IBM

Given that I am new, I am looking for advice on where to begin to find a
solution to my problem.

It may, and it may not.  If it's an earlier DWL 650 then it is a Prism
chipset and will work just fine.  For later models they switched to (I
think) the ACX100 chipset, which is poorly supported, although there
appears to be an open-source effort around for it more recently that
might get you going.

Your best starting point is Jean Tourrilhes pages here:


There is an acx100-source package in Debian, so you should be able to
build the kernel + modules, if that's what you need to do.

Good luck,
